Big Rig Safety & Lamborghini Concept
Ford has developed a hat that could make the roads safer for big rigs. It’s called SafeCap. Ford says the cap can identify the head movements associated with drowsiness. Then the cap lets the truck driver know it’s time to take a rest break three ways: sound, visual and vibrating. Ford recently demonstrated how it works at the Fenatran trade show in Brazil.
Lamborghini is looking far into the future. So far into the future they’ve named this electric super sports car concept Terzo Millennio. Translation: Third Millenium. The company is working with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to harness new ideas. Instead of conventional batteries they’re investigating the potential of super capacitors. They’re looking for new ways to make carbon fiber materials. The collaboration is also working on integrating an electric motor on each wheel.
